Video Diary: A Good Nights Sleep

Hey folks! Vlog #2 above… eek! If you didn’t see my first one, I shared a video at the end of last year about how much I wanted to support The Dogs Trust for my birthday. This time I’m chatting to you about how important it is to have the right bed, mattress and pillows to get a good nights sleep.. and if you can’t, Time4Sleep sent me a little box of pamper products to make it at least look like I have ;)

So if you don’t want to watch the video or you’d like a little recap, here are my top tips for getting a good nights sleep:

//  Invest in a good mattress. Things things are expensive for a wee self employed lass like myself, but do not underestimate the power of a good mattress. Don’t end up in the hospital with a bad back like I did!

//  Spend time picking out the right pillows. Do you sleep on your stomach? Back? Pick one that helps you, not hinders.

//  Have a good ol’ cup of tea before bed. If you’re affected by caffeine, choose a caffeine free option of either decaff or a fruity tea.

//  Have a ‘getting ready’ period before your actual bedtime. Don’t plan to go to bed at 11pm and then spend half an hour having a wash and getting organised.

//  Do something relaxing. Watch some comforting DVDs or read a book before sleep. Don’t work!!

//  If you’re not into beauty creams and crazy formulas, at the very least take off your make-up and put on a good moisturiser.

Time4Sleep have a really informative guide of what happens to your body during sleep, have a peek!

I hope you found some good information on getting the best rest! What are your top tips for feeling refreshed after sleeping?

SEVEN: Of The Best iPhone Hard Cases

Best iPhone Cases for 5/5S

1. Fat Kitty | The No Such Disco  //  2. Skull | Ali Gulec  //  3. Giraffe | Nicole Cioffe
4. Brogue | Serena Olivieri  //  5. Gold Glitter | Monika Strigel
6. Monsters Inc | Emiliano Morciano  //  7. Bunny | Hello Harriet

I can finally upgrade my phone tomorrow, woohooo! I’ve had a bit of a saga since I took out my contract on my current iPhone 4S. First I dropped my original phone in a mug of tea and didn’t realise for about half an hour.. don’t rest your phone on the arm of the chair if there’s some tea sat innocently on the table next to it. That’s all I’m saying. Then I bought a replacement on eBay only to be conned and have to get my money back through the resolution centre. Then I finally picked up a real second hand iPhone only to throw it when gesturing too wildy at a party and smash the screen. ARGH!

In my excitement to get a brand new, shiny phone (the iPhone 5S in gold) I’ve been researching awesome iPhone cases as I clearly need to protect it from the off. The glittery case would go excellently with the gold and white colour I’m pining for, but Mike Wazowski? Enough said. I have the skull print on a t-shirt already, but I loooove Ali Gulec’s work so. Decisions, decisions.
